Ha, today Signal +5. It is amazing that people are very willing to try a different msg app. Arguments like privacy and security and 'getting away from FB and Google' really seem to start working.
But argument nr 1 is simply stating that we are Signal people and all you need to do to connect with us is installing a simple app. If people do want to connect, they install. If they don't want to, no problem we will continue using SMS and email.
Popularity of apps is overrated.
